The Kinks Reunite: After Years of Feuding, Ray and Dave Davies Look Happy Together at Football Game


The Kinks are finally at peace.

Brothers Ray Davies and Dave Davies have famously feuded on and off for 50 years. Eventually, their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame group imploded and they went their separate ways. They made solo albums, wrote books and attacked each other in print.

So it’s very reassuring to see them post a photo looking like loving bro’s. It’s about time. We don’t need a new album but maybe a big Kinks farewell concert. Their many hits include “You Really Got Me,” “Sunny Afternoon,” “Destroyer,” “Lola,” “All Day and All of the Night,” and many, many more.

What brought them together? Arsenal Football, of course!
